Forum User Guide

1. Check open topics. Before creating a new topic, check if there is already an open topic for your question.
2. Do not get into or start public quarrels. Strive to solve problems peacefully. Remember: all people have the right to express their opinions, ideas, thoughts, suggest something, etc. Respect this right!
3. Report any violations of forum rules. You can notify the administration about the violation by clicking on the button with a red exclamation mark in the upper right corner of the message in which you noticed the violation.
4. Lend a helping hand. If another user needs help or needs to explain something, feel free to help the person if you know how to help.
5. Don't be afraid to ask. If you cannot find any information or an answer to a question that torments you, then do not hesitate to ask about it. However, do not forget to first make sure that there is no open topic on your question.
6. Welcome new members of the community with cordiality and hospitality! Help newbies learn the basics of where to find the information they need, how to save time searching, and what it takes to get involved in the community. We are for a large, strong and friendly community.
7. Topic titles should be as descriptive as possible. Avoid "generic" language such as "Need help" or "I have a question." The more informative the title of the post, the greater the chance that the right people will respond to your topic.
8. Show respect for moderators and administration both on the forum and during correspondence in private messages.
9. Stick to the topic of discussion. Messages, the content of which is not related to the topic of discussion, may be deleted.
10. The content of posts should be targeted at users of all ages. If it seems that "young" users should not see any message, then this message does not belong on the forum.
11. Moderators and other responsible persons have the sole right, at their discretion, to determine the purpose of the message / topic and their compliance with the rules of the forum. If, from the point of view of these individuals, any of the topics or any message is unconstructive or inciting hatred, these individuals have the right to take appropriate disciplinary action.
